So Caroline tagged me! Eight random things about myself...hmmm
But first: The rules!
1: Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2: People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3: At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
4: Don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them they're tagged, and to read your blog.
Here you go!
1:I am very tall (187 cm, or 6feet1and1/2) This used to bother me, because people would mistake me for a boy, or a young man. The very short hair I had, or the lack of makeup, might not have helped...
2: We lost our house in a fire in December 2003.We got out alright, but lost everything. Now the house is rebuilt, and we're doing fine. After the fire, we found a few items in the ruins- a couple of silverspoons, some glasses, a piece of jewellry-only small things. But the very first thing we pulled out, was my Bible and a cross, the Bible severely burnt on the outside, but NOT ONE SINGLE WORD OR PAGE WAS MISSING OR UNREADABLE.
3: My grandmother taught me how to crochet at the age of 4 or 5. I've been doing it ever since. My two younger sisters claims that I've got all the craft-genes of the family- from both sides...
4: We are readers. My parents and sisters and I all read. And then we are lost to this world. We all married men who don't read...
5: I live on a farm. So does my two sisters!
6: I have two sons and two daughters born within a period of five years. There are 16, 23 and 21 months between them. I love them. But it often amazes methat I am related to them at all!
7: I went to California as an au pair when I was 20 (in 1983...), lived in northern Berkeley, and really enjoyed myself. I've lost contact with that family.
8: I speak Icelandic, though not fluently, due to my stay in Iceland for 18 months in 1985/86. I still keep in touch with that family, they've been here to visit several times. I would love to go back!
So, there you have. 8 random things.
Now I just have to tag someone....
